And the part that is probably everyone’s favorite, you get to race! The cars don’t move of course but it’s a simulated race that actually feels as if you are truly on the track. You get to sit in a real race car with a video screen in front of you and you race the other participants. You even get a printout at the end of your race to see how well you did!
